In this article, we cover how to set the DNS servers on a router with direct connectivity to the internet. Setting up Lumu Gateway for Continuous Compromise Assessment on a router is the deployment recommended for enterprises where all the traffic is directed to the internet via a router device. If you want more context on Lumu Deployment scenarios, consult our documentation.
Most modern routers provide a configuration interface (administration panel) that can be accessed using your web browser as if it were a website. The page is served to your browser directly from the router.
1. Navigate to your router’s local address, you can type the IP address of your router as you do with URLs (example: http://192.168.0.1/ or http://192.168.1.1/). You may need a password to have access to your router settings.
2. After accessing your router’s configuration panel, search for the DNS settings. It might look like this:
3. Enter the Lumu DNS server addresses (or Virtual Appliance IP) as the router's DNS server settings and save/apply. Some routers have you restart the router to apply the changes.
The final step is to verify that your DNS connections are correctly routed through Lumu. See Validate your DNS Settings for more information.
